Ninth Annual Rocky Mountain Bass Slam Announced

Rocky Mountain Bass SlamThe Rocky Mountains will be shaking once again at the 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Bass Slam on May 15th, 2016. This year the Slam, held in Denver, will be headlined by bass legend Chuck Rainey and funkmeister Doug Johns along with local performers.

“The Bass Slam will showcase the Colorado Bass Talent via several different formats: There will be solo bass performances as well as bass duo performances,” event organizers shared. “We may also be having a multi bass player jam at the end of the show. There will be raffles, prizes, and giveaways between performances and a presentation of the donations to the beneficiary at the end of the show.”

The Rocky Mountain Bass Slam benefits the Blue Star Connection, whose mission is to provide access to musical instruments for children with life threatening illness through a personal instrument for home use or through sponsored Children’s Hospitals or similar programs, primarily in the USA.

Colorado bassists include Jeff Andrews, Matt Skellenger, Glenn Tapia, Paul Rogalski, Blake Eberhard, Nicholas Golder, John Colin Miller, and Craig Pratt. The 9th Annual Rocky Mountain Bass Slam takes place May 15th at 1:30pm at the Historic Oriental Theater in Denver, Colorado.
